The Jackie Robinson biopic; 42, hits theaters today!! The movie is not just about how Jackie Robinson integrated the game of baseball, but it’s also a love story about Jackie and his wife Rachel. We give the film two thumbs up! One of the best movies of the year! The incredible film is a must see and Cherise Nicole (CNikky) attended the red carpet premiere at the Graumans Chinese Theater to grab a few exclusives from the cast!
We asked the star of the film Chadwick Boseman, what was the biggest lesson he learned while filming the movie:
“I don’t even know yet man. It’s too many different things. I think taking a sense of his courage away from it. And not worrying about what the ramifications of stuff is all the time. I mean just, walking in faith. I think he had a sense of destiny and providence, fortitude in order to do this. So, hopefully I can carry that with me.”
One of the most exciting moments on the carpet was when the real Hall Of Fame legend Ed Charles, met the little boy that plays him in the movie (Dusan Brown) for the first time.
We asked Dusan what it was like to meet the man he portrayed in the movie:
“It’s very exciting because when I found out that he was actually a baseball player, I wanted to meet him right away! Because I wanted to know what I was doing, how I was doing and how I was suppossed to do it, like he lived it.”
Ed Charles also responded:
“I’m very excited. I’m just..I’m tickled to death, I don’t believe this is really happening!”
42 Premieres in theatres today! We highly reccomend it!
